Overview
Edwards is a dynamic scorer who is at his best taking the ball to the paint and using his power and explosive athleticism to score the ball over length. He can hit the step-back jumper, has smooth three point range and is a threat to score every time he touches the ball.

Edwards is a true power guard who plays like a bigger version of Victor Oladipo. He's simply too much for 1 defender to handle and can get his shot at will. His explosive power and effortless elevation are a thing of beauty. And when he dunks the ball it looks like he could rip the rim off the backboard. We haven't seen a power guard like this in a while.

Edwards holds his own on the defensive end and has lots of potential to be a lock-down defender. As he gains experience he should begin to stand out more on that end of the floor. He's put on at least 30 pounds from his HS junior season and now has the frame to hold his own in the paint and guard the small forward position.

Georgia will be the team to watch in 2019/20.
